AI-based analysis system for the diagnosis of breast cancer

The study describes a new tissue-section analysis system for diagnosing breast cancer based on artificial intelligence (AI). Two developments make this system unique: For the first time, morphological, molecular and histological data are integrated into a single analysis. Secondly, the system provides a clarification of the AI decision process in the form of heatmaps. Pixel by pixel, these heatmaps show which visual information influenced the AI decision process and to what extent, thus enabling doctors to understand and assess the plausibility of the results of the AI analysis. This represents a decisive and essential step forward for the future regular use of AI systems in hospitals.
